A mom who hopes to give Dad what he wants this year may want to leave the ties, shirts, and socks off the gift list. In fact, she may just want to take her own clothes off - or better yet, take her clothes off and leave the tie on.
When BabyCenter surveyed more than 1,000 dads about their special day, 57 percent picked getting intimate and making love as their top gift choice.
But having a "sexcation" - as one dad put it - wasn't the number one idea for the almost 900 moms we surveyed. Only 18 percent of them picked making love as frosting for Father's Day.
Fortunately, this discrepancy doesn't necessarily mean bad times are in line for Father's Day.
Nearly half of dads and moms agree that going on a family outing or doing some activities with the children is a great way to celebrate Dad.
Even better for Pop, most moms (58 percent) and dads (63 percent) agree that date night is important. So if he doesn't get what he wants for Father's Day, maybe he'll get lucky after that next night out on the town.
